Goodbye Snelling, Welcome Back Hansen

The Mariners sent Chris Snelling down to Tacoma following this afternoon's win, activating super-duper pinch-hitting phenom Dave Hansen. Snelling's stay in Seattle was disappointing, as the team didn't give him a chance to show what he is capable of and only gave him a handful of AB's. Snelling will be back eventually this year and depending on trade activity, quite possibly in 10 days. Hansen will assume the role he filled prior to his DL trip as 'the guy who is on the bench that you forget is on the team until he makes his weekly PH appearance.'
